Here's a complete course in classical guitar on six one-hour CDs. Designed both for novices and experienced guitarists, these lessons will help you improve your musicianship, build your technique, and enhance your musical understanding.
Guitarist Stephen Funk Pearson teaches you to play expressive, beautiful guitar pieces right from the first lesson. As you play through these easy-to-use instructional CDs, you'll learn essential classical guitar techniques such as correct hand positions, barring, scales and arpeggios, fingering, phrasing, stopping basses, vibrato, glissando, slurs and harmonics. In addition, you'll get invaluable musical insights into tone and timbre control, interpretation, improvisation, dynamic control, and much more.
Starting with the simplest examples, you'll build a repertoire of more than 25 compelling selections spanning four centuries and five countries. Here are just a few of the tunes you will be playing:
"Lagrima" (Tarrega), "Canario" (Calvi), "Greensleeves" (Trad.), "Prelude #1" (Carulli), "Bouree" (Bach), "Pavana" (Milan), "Study #5" (Sor), "Mixture" (Pearson).
NOTE: This CD set was previously released on six audio cassettes as "Not Just Classical Guitar."
